  Our Accompanist

Roger Cleverdon studied at the Guildhall School of Music. He was a chorister at Exeter Cathedral before singing as a Lay Vicar at Westminster Abbey between 1965 and 2001, combining this with freelance piano and organ playing and singing.

Roger worked with Donald Swann from 1971 to 1992 in two shows, ‘Between the Bars’ and ‘A Crack in Time.’

Roger has sung with the Two Ronnies and was one of the original Lumberjacks in the famous Monty Python sketch.

Since retiring to Hatherleigh he has contributed hugely to local music, including a hilarious performance of Flanders and Swann songs to raise money for local causes.
